Yip, I'm keen to get out there (weather dependent obviously).

Interested in having a look at the mussel farms but also keen to have a hunt on the Manukau to see if I can find any gurnard. I think the Manukau C&K trip was postponed from last weekend to this so might be an option?

Will keep an eye out here :)

Yea will leave it until at least tomorrow to make the call as the weather is changing lots, but yea looks like either day we are likely to get a few showers, but hopefully nothing too bad.

Just checked out the weather for fishing the farms on the weekend. It looks like there is a window on saturday morning at the moment with the wave height and wind speed but not sure about it rain wise. I've never fished the out going tide there yet but am willing to try and if it rains I'm ok with that as well??
Anyone else keen?
